2020 Pride in Belper Shop Windows

The Pride in Belper team invited Love Belper Independent shops to decorate their shop windows or a small part of their shop for Pride in Belper Online.
Together we celebrate inclusivity as well as the reopening of the high street businesses safely throughout the town.

The rainbow has been a symbol of hope throughout the lockdown. Let it continue to be a symbol of hope as well as a symbol of the hard won freedoms of the LGBT+ community.

Pride in Belper is developed under four pillars; inclusivity, sustainability, accessibility and diversity.

We as a planning team value and celebrate the intersections of every single person who engages meaningfully in the community of Belper.

We believe that it is everyone's responsibility to challenge discrimination within our community and society, and it is not okay to be a bystander. We do not accept any form of behaviour or language which seeks to harm minority groups and activate hate.

At the Love Wins concert in February we raised the visibility particularly of Belper's Trans community, who we know have experienced forms of abuse and hate in Belper.

We say fairly but fiercely, that this is not okay and we will always do all that we can to stop this.

We can all make a difference in this community and we can all role model change. We ask that each and every one of us actively stands by every single person who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender, because sexuality and gender identity are part of everyone's life and it takes courage to be the person you know you really are.

Faith and sexuality is still a taboo subject, the “elephant in the room”.

In this religion and belief panel, the first of its kind, meet lesbians from various faith groups, sharing their experiences about living at this intersection.

Chaired by Jayne Ozanne, who recently resigned from the government’s LGBT Panel, learn about how our panellists have been able to be their fully authentic selves in their faith communities and what this has meant to them and those around them.
